The Wearing of the Green

As soon as I saw the cute little necklace of crocheted circles from Happy Together on Pinterest, I knew I was going to have to create one for myself.  Just in time for St Patrick's Day!





Crocheting all those circles was a little more tedious and time consuming at first than I had anticipated, but once I got into a rhythm things sped up and went pretty quickly.




I did discover that you've got to make sure all your jump rings are closed super tight! Otherwise the thin embroidery thread will manage to slip out and you'll be dripping circles everywhere.  Trust me. Learned this one the hard way.  Next time I think I might try split rings rather than jump rings.




I am in love with the end result! And already picturing it made in shades of black/white/gray, blues, or a rainbow of colors!
